German[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

A dialectal word which has an unshifted -p- throughout High German. Therefore possibly from Middle Low German trampen, whence also English tramp. Compare also Middle Dutch trampen, whereas only the frequentative trampeln is attested in Middle High German. Nevertheless, the word may not be inherited but a mediaeval onomatopoeia.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈtʁampən/, [ˈtʁampən], [ˈtʁampm̩].

Verb[edit]

trampen (third-person singular simple present trampt, past tense trampte, past participle getrampt, auxiliary haben)

  1. (archaic or dialectal) to step; to tread
